verblühter lavendel —
wieder kehrt
die biene zurück

withered lavender —
again the bee
returns

(AW; WHC-German, 2005 — editor: Dietmar Tauchner and editorial staff)





sweet taste

once a year
no sometimes twice
i return to a garden
close to the wishing well
a lollipop tree
again i want to know
what a fireplug is
who made moon and stars
like always
grandmother answers
that we have to ask father
all are alive
even uncle Edward
the radio-storyteller
when i open my eyes
my hands are sticky
and there is a sweet taste
on my tongue

Katrina

the House of Blues
now closed
mothers lull
babies to sleep
in no shelter
